About Us


Vermont Mountain Bike Camps was founded upon a simple goal of getting more kids on bikes and out on the trails.

Mountain biking offers the perfect balance of challenge, risk and reward.  Aside from our two top priorities of fun and safety, we want to send the kids home each day with a strong sense of pride and accomplishment. 

At Vermont Mountain Bike Camps, we set obtainable, yet progressive goals for our riders so they can feel good about their achievements, their athletic abilities and ultimately, themselves


Chris Lynch (Director / Coach)

I’m a NY native that attended Johnson State College and fell in love with Vermont.  I have been an avid mountain biker for over 20 years and the sport changed my life.  For many years, I lived and rode in the Stowe area.  In 2005, we built a house right on the doorstep of the Cady’s Falls trail network and I am excited to share my passion for riding and love of the Vermont outdoors with our campers!

I have also been hosting fly fishing sleep-away and day camps since 2012. Please check out our site at VTFishCamp.com


Denise Lynch (Director / Coach)

Denise teaches at a local elementary school within Lamoille County. Her passions include working with children, outdoor activities and, most of all, riding bikes.

Elias Gillen (Coach)


Elias attended our first ever program as a camper and, over the last few years, he has stepped into a coaching role at VMBC. 

Elias is a very talented on the bike and he’s recently had some great success on the regional race circuit. 


Emmett Avery (Coach)


The first bike Emmett bought was five dollars at a yard sale. For the next several years, Emmett and his friends submitted the Five Dollar Bike to all manner of unspeakable abuse — down roads unmanned and off new jumps to test the arc.
Today, Emmett mostly stays on his bike, though there is still no guarantee where jumps are concerned. He has competed extensively on the local enduro race circuit, both in junior and pro. He has also had the
good fortune to race Enduro World Series rounds in Whistler, British Columbia, and Finale, Italy. Now he is excited to get humbled by the next generation at Vermont Mountain Bike Camps and maybe communicate some wisdom, skill, or at least stoke, along the way.
